5 other works by the artist behind Austin’s newly acquired ‘Forever Bicycles’ 

Pictures of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s mind-boggling sculpture “Forever Bicycles” have taken over Austin Instagram. 

The installation, comprised of 1,200 bicycles, was planted on the lawn near Waller Creek and Lady Bird Lake June 3 and has since proven a popular subject on the photo sharing app. Take a look below:
